I got a LG VS980, don't know what version exactly I only managed to get to the home screen for a short while. Everytime I start the phone it's stuck on the LG screen, I boot into factory reset (it doesn't work and shows a dead android) and open system recovery and get this:
[Recovery.cpp][main()] ############### factory reset sart ##################, Thu Jan 1 00:22:18 1970 E:failed to mount /system (No such file or directory) [recovery.cpp] system partition mount failed!! E:failed to mount /cache (No such file or directory) E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/log E:Can't open /cache/recovery/log
Continues with many more lines of can't open and mount. The recovery thing gives me a few options:
reboot system now <-- Just boots into the infinite LG screen apply update from ABD wipe data/factory reset <-- Tried this, doesn't work wipe cache partition <-- Also doesn't work reboot to bootloader <-- Just boots into the infinite LG screen power down view recovery logs apply update from sdcard <-- This phone doesn't have an SD card slot (atleast I couldn't find it)
I think booting from ABD would work only problem is I can't access my phones internal storage...
Just so it's clear: I got this phone about a week ago from Verizon, I got this error not even a day after getting the phone. I go back to the store the next day and they are unwilling to replace it or help me (apparently what I did, which was nothing, voided warranty). This is my last hope to save this crap before I buy a new one from else where.
EDIT: I've gotten ADB to work to an extent. I got the OTA file and the program ready to go, now ADB can't find the phone to send it the files. I have the Android SDK which I got from the android studio, it still will not find it. I know you usually have to set it to debugging mode and what not, but remember I can't access the phone's home screen. I'm still digging, so I'll update if I make any progress.
Second edit: I'm thinking this thing is toast, I've gotten the computer to recognize the phone but now the phone is saying this:
E:failed to mount /cache (No such file or directory) E:failed to mount /cache E:failed to set up expected mounts for install; aborting Installation aborted.
Third edit: I don't know why this happens, but if I leave the phone off for a bit, it will boot to the main screen. I am able to access the things I would need to flash the damn thing.
